Best red carpet fashion at the 2023 Grammy Awards
See all the best looks from this year's Grammy Awards in Los Angeles.
The Grammy Awards
red carpet is known for more risqué fashion than some of its silver screen counterparts, and the music industry's biggest names delivered again on Sunday evening.
As the ceremony returned to its usual home — the Crypto.com Arena, formerly known as the Staples Center, in Los Angeles — for the first time since 2020, stars arrived in dramatic silhouettes and loud color choices ahead of the annual event.
Among the most eye-catching looks was Cardi B's sculptural electric blue custom gown by Indian designer Gaurav Gupta
, who made his Haute Couture Week
debut in Paris just over a week ago. Lizzo also stunned in a dramatic Dolce & Gabbana cape, adorned with applique flowers, from the Italian label's Alta Moda 2022 collection.
Kim Petras and Sam Smith made one of the biggest statements of the night by arriving in bold red ensembles with an entourage featuring drag queens Violet Chachki and Gottmik. Smith's top hat and cape were just some of the evening's fun accessories, which ranged from Pharrell's bejeweled Tiffany shades to the playful opera gloves sported by Doja Cat and R&B singer Hannah Monds.
No single shade ruled the night, though a notable number of attendees wowed in pink. Bebe Rexha nodded to Barbiecore in a Moschino gown (also with matching gloves) while Kacey Musgraves impressed in a pink bodysuit and feathered cape by Valentino.
There were plenty of crystals and rhinestones on display, too. Taylor Swift wore a sparkling blue two-piece by Roberto Cavalli,
while Harry Styles eschewed formalwear in favor of a dazzling technicolor EgonLab jumpsuit adorned with Swarovski crystals.
The former One Direction singer was one of several stars to wear flared looks, with the members of Måneskin and Shania Twain also getting in on the trend in a Harris Reed
polka dot pantsuit and Gucci suits with flared trousers, respectively.
But discernable trends were few and far between on a night where, fashion-wise, anything goes. Look no further than Anderson Paak's floral suit or Miguel's floor-length hooded denim Diesel coat for evidence that attendees were out to have fun.
